This is due in part to the autumn timing of the peak rainfall season in Central Vietnam, at a time when tropical cyclones are most likely to make landfall. We conducted climate diagnostic analyses using meteorological and tropical cyclone data to understand the changing patterns of autumn rainfall and tropical cyclones, revealing an intensification of precipitation over Central Vietnam since the beginning of the 20 th century that is associated with increased tropical cyclones in the adjacent sea. A warming of the sea surface temperature (SST) and enhanced southerly low-level winds are coincident with the above noted increase in rainfall and tropical cyclones. The underlying regional SST and circulation patterns are part of a hemispheric-scale change in the general circulation, . a La Nina-like SST anomaly and a .
